Our world and it’s range of conflicts, tensions and challenges!
Our nation

Church families across South Bucks, to draw closer to God and reach out with the Good News.
Gold Hill and Hope Church families & leaders as we interact with our neighbours and communities.
Local initiatives (Community groups and Foodbanks) – practical support and pointing to God.
